The ghost story is as old as time itself, yet many of us still seek ways to make our work terrifying. Join Leslie Grover at The Porch for a course that will help you find your "inner boo" just in time for Halloween.
In this class, we will cover ghost story basics, practice making just about any story scary, and find ways to reimagine the traditional ghost story. Writers beware! This class is not for the faint of heart. Join us - IF YOU DARE.
